Crepes Stuffed with AppleApril 3rd, 2010 in Main Dishes, No-meat by Julia Volhina
For some reasons, I always cook a bit too much than we can eat at once, especially when it comes to crêpes.
So there are some times when I am wondering what to do with all those extra crêpes left from the yesterday.
Here is nice idea how else you can eat left over crêpes: stuff them with honey and apples – those will get you full fast, and because stuffing is pure apple – you will also eat good nutritious breakfast.

Boiled BuckwheatFebruary 20th, 2010 in Sides by Julia Volhina
I think buckwheat grain is one of the most nutritious and healthy foods one can ever eat: it is very rich on iron, zink, other minerals and vitamins which makes it perfect food for kids and women during pregnancy.
It is also low on carbohydrates comparing to other grains (and for those which it does have body needs long time to digest);for me that makes boiled buckwheat (straight or with a bit of milk) perfect food for days when I want to eat a bit less and exercise a bit more: it makes you feel full longer without eating too much.
Boiled buckwheat is a perfect side for any kind of beef dishes: I personally prefer to serve it with beef stroganoff or minced beef cutlets; however it can be served as a stand alone dish. Boiled buckwheat grain with milk is very popular breakfast food for children and adults in countries of East Europe.
Deruny (Potato Pancakes)February 6th, 2010 in Main Dishes, No-meat by Julia Volhina
Potato pancakes, prepared from fresh chopped or grated potatoes, onions, eggs and flour, are commonly associated with various cuisines of Europe. In Ukraine they are called “deruny”, in Russia and Belarus “draniki”; similar recipes can be found in Polish, German, Austrian, Czech cuisines.
Potato pancakes are usually a main no meat dish for lunch or breakfast; it tastes good topped with sour cream or mushroom sauce.
Even though potato pancakes are good enough as a separate dish, they can be also served as a side dish for vegetable or meat main dish course.
Bacon and Eggs with TomatoesDecember 5th, 2009 in Eggs, Main Dishes, Pork by Julia Volhina
Fried eggs dishes are usually breakfast food, however they are also coming handy when you need to prepare and eat something fast.
Fried eggs with bacon and tomatoes is my favorite way of preparing eggs: easy, tasty and fast. The ingredients in recipe will make a portion for a breakfast for two, adjust amounts if you need more or less.
Cherry or campari tomatoes are perfect for this dish, but if you have any other kind – that will work as well. And if you don’t like bacon for some reasons – replace it with half spoon of butter, however I advice to keep it in, for the perfect taste.

Odds are your kids will love them (even though they consist of pure vegetables)!
